Broyhill Chamber Ensemble: The Brahms Piano Quintet
Gil Morgenstern and Harumi Rhodes, violin
Kathryn Lockwood, viola
Sophie Shao, cello
Melvin Chen, piano
This final concert features the most requested work throughout the history of chamber music at An Appalachian Summer Festival: Brahms’ Piano Quintet. In keeping with Reflections Series International's goal of illuminating familiar works through context, the program compares and contrasts the sounds and colors of two disparate combinations (a string duo and a piano trio), all adding up to the grand finale quintet by Brahms.
